Angelina Jolie 'to sue' Perez Hilton for divorce coverage

Angelina Jolie has reportedly threatened to sue celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton for his coverage of the Jolie-Pitt divorce.
Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September following two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
Hilton, who's website is known for controversial content, was reportedly asked by Jolie's lawyers to change the coverage regarding the divorce on the site.
In a picture posted to Instagram, Hilton showed a screenshot of his alleged reply to the actresses' lawyers.
"Please get this message to Angelina Jolie herself," he wrote.
"She KNOWS... I have ALWAYS been a huge fan and SUPPORTER of hers! I am livid!"
"Unless she wants me to turn into an enemy, I want an apology right now. I am not changing anything."
"If you want to sue me, my lawyer is Bryan Freedman and he is CC'd."
The former Celebrity Big Brother star denied that any of his content was inaccurate, saying: "I did nothing illegal. We stand 100% behind our reporting."
In the caption of the post, Hilton said he has "always been one of Angelina Jolie's loudest and strongest supporters and defenders."
"Glad I'm not running for president!" the father-of-two finished.
Jolie (41) and Pitt (52) were in a relationship for 10 years before tying the knot in a secret ceremony in 2014.
They have reportedly reached a temporary custody agreement that will allow the actor to visit his six children.
